I've found a few wonderful new blogs, recently, and also finally managed to get around to linking up to some that I hadn't gotten around to (sorry I'm so slow).
Since "Bookfoolery" implies that my emphasis is books, my goal was to try to put the most bookish of links together and separate others that I like, which may or may not have book reviews or book chatter. Anyone who has been here knows I do babble (hence the latter part of the blog name), and I tried to consider that there is often an interesting balance. If you think your blog is more bookish than otherwise and I'm just not thinking, here, because I'm a silly goose - and you want me to shove your link to the bookish section - let me know. It's not my intent to offend. Also, please let me know if I've forgotten you. I've had visitors with book blogs that I didn't get around to linking up to, in spite of repeat visits, and then just couldn't locate because of the very frustrating turtle-loading rate we've got here (still on dial-up, believe it or not). Also, nobody denies I'm an airhead and just forget things.
Two of the new links have been added because they're so darned upbeat and I think everyone can use a positive infusion, now and then, even if it's to read about other people's great moments. Three Beautiful Things is one of them; it was a Blog of Note, earlier in the week and it is just lovely. I may have to come up with my own version, just because I think it pays to keep thinking about anything and everything beautiful in life. Tongue in Cheek is the other. Both are great for a lift.
Last but not least, I've been pondering the future Chunkster Challenge that I plan to host. Because thick books intimidate me so and Les has mentioned that she plans to challenge herself to one per month for the entire year, in 2007, but I'm not sure I can tolerate quite that many (wimp alert) I'm considering making it a very individual thing. Also, I can't decide about length. A year seems way too long. Is 6 months too lengthy? Would 3 months be sufficient? Any thoughts are welcome, encouraged - in fact, pleaded for.
And, also, I didn't properly thank Sassymonkey for hosting another challenge - and thanks for letting me in. I was too tired to compute time zones, last night, which means zombie level, so I don't know if I was on time or not but I'm in! I love reading challenges!! Yippee and thanks, Sassy!
